Many institutions in higher education are offering at least some of their curriculum online and use online course management systems to support these learning environments. Successful participation in online learning depends on many factors, and may especially be influenced by the degree of computer competency users bring with them to the learning environment. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effects of several areas of computer competency on student learning experiences and learning environment usability in online learning environments. Subject of evaluation was a multi-section course consisting of eight sections taught in hybrid format; approximately 50% of course work was conducted using the World Wide Web. Results of the study have direct implications in online course design and development
